You can replace your failing cords often, or get an UnbreakCable
The Syncwire UnbreakCable(s) is a line of USB C, Micro-USB, and Lightning tough little cables sold at Wal-Mart that come with a lifetime warranty in the event you manage to breakCable.
I put about ten minutes into attempting to destroy the USB C version, I have a feeling I will eventually succeed if I continue my efforts however I’m not particularly interested in doing this to destruction. The fact I didn’t break it in one impresses me.
I don’t have a whole lot to say about them other than that they are reasonably priced for the USB C and Lightning varieties coming in at under $9. The Micro USB cable it does seem a little high at $6.98 considering you can get four (different brand) out of a six pack for the same price.
Then again, lifetime warranty, probably at a store you go by fairly often considering how many Walmarts there are, and they might be the last of that type of cable you ever have to purchase.
Here’re the product pages on Walmart:
They’re also on Amazon, although it looks like Walmart wins the pricing wars this round.
They sent me two of each kind and I now have a trailer hitch so I might see how strong they are at some point ;)
